Our Strategic Plan 2018 - 2023
We are delighted to welcome you to our Strategic Plan 2018 - 2023.
This strategic plan was developed following consultation with staff, volunteers, service users and stakeholders within the community before being further considered at our ‘Vision Day’ in June 2017. A key context to this plan is the acknowledgement that we have faced many challenges as we moved from a collective to a formal management structure, with an overseeing board, whilst at the same time facing unprecedented increases in demands on our service.
A strategic priority for us over the last few years has been to reduce our waiting lists and the time survivors are on the waiting lists, however, this has not been possible, as we have not had the necessary growth in staff numbers to meet the sharp increase in the number of referrals to our service.
However, we have succeeded in securing funding for the Young People’s service which we hope will help alleviate this. We agreed to expand the range of services we provide to include children and young people, including boys and young men up to the age of 18. This was due to increasing demands for support from young survivors following the introduction of the prevention work that we are undertaking among young people in schools, colleges, universities and youth groups across Dundee and Angus.
We have taken care to ensure that our strategic plan incorporates the Rape Crisis Scotland outcomes and is in line with local and national strategic outcomes.
We hope that you can support and assist us meeting these ambitious goals.
